Preview: The Unbelievable Gwenpool #1 From Marvel Comics


If you can believe it, The Unbelievable Gwenpool is getting her own regular series, proving that too much Deadpool is never a bad thing.

I honestly can’t believe that Gwenpool is getting her own series. I mean, this is a character that showed up on a Deadpool variant by Chris Bachalo as a joke to mock the huge success of Spider-Gwen, another character that seeming took fandom by storm overnight.

Now, after a handful of backup stories in Howard the Duck and a very successful holiday special, the powers that be at Marvel have decided to launch Gwenpool into her very own ongoing series.

Written by Christopher Hastings with artwork by Gurihiru (the Japanese team of Chifuyu Sasaki and Naoko Kawano), The Unbelievable Gwenpool launches this April from Marvel Comics.

From the Marvel press release:

"Gwen Poole used to be a comic book reader just like you…until one day she woke up INSIDE the Marvel Universe. Now all the characters she read about are real! But they can’t be really real, can they? This has got to be some kind of dream or something, right? Well you know what that means – NO CONSEQUENCES! First order of business, get a costume and start fighting crime. Why? Because that’s what everyone who has a solo series does!No power. No responsibility. No rules. No limits. The Marvel Universe  has a new player, and she’ll shoot and stab her way through anyone and everyone. Could she truly be Marvel’s least role-modely and least responsible character to date? She can if she tries! Find out this April as this marvelous mercenary makes her explosive entrance in THE UNBELIEVABLE GWENPOOL #1!"

It is hard to understand how Supergirl, a character with her own television show can not have her own ongoing series yet Gwenpool can have one in only a matter of months after her first apperence.

Someone at DC needs to get on the ball.

Nope. Still can’t believe she is actually getting her own ongoing series. Unbelievable.

The Unbelievable Gwenpool #1 will be in comic book stores everywhere April 13, 2016.
